- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 13209393, 5 years agoHighly suspicious addon. Add-on is licensed with Mozilla license but no source code published/accessible. Website is suspicious because it references github but there's no github available. Addon can report and track your browsing history to some unknown 3rd party. Find an alternative that you can trust.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoDear user, if you need to download the source code, please right-click on the "Add to Firefox" button and then click on "Save Link As" item in the context-menu. Once the package is downloaded to your PC, change the suffix ".xpi" to ".zip" or ".rar", and then unzip the package to a desired folder. I will also upload the package (source-code) to GitHub soon.
Please note: this addon does NOT report and track your browsing history to any 3rd party at all. You can review the addon's source code if you want.
- Rated 2 out of 5by KitsuneKai, 5 years agoThe inability to block a specific URL instead of just the entire domain is disappointing. This was a basic feature of BlockSite and for this addon to seriously replace it, it should have it.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 13016600, 5 years agoExcellent add-on, I registered here just to say thank you! All it needs is a way block certain URLS rather than entire sites. For example, I'd like to continue browsing /r/news while keeping the X-rated boards of Reddit blocked on this computer.
- Rated 5 out of 5by RobotUnderscore, 5 years agoNormally anyone would go download LeechBlocker but you can only use that for certain time frames and not enable/disable it at will like this add-on. Works better for my workflow and I have had no issues so far. Great extension
- Rated 4 out of 5by superc53, 5 years agoA big problem is that many sites I wish to permanantly block have a routine that only allows one click to install something. We need this to be able to right click to block while on the 'show all history' page
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 12758181, 6 years agoBlocks websites very effectively. I mainly use it to stop myself from binge watching YouTube videos. I have an endless supply of procrastination, and I'll usually find myself wandering into YouTube land if a web page has an embedded video. I have the app redirect me to a more helpful website, which happens to be Khan Academy right now. This little boost in focus has significantly reduced my wasted hours online. I use Chrome only to watch YouTube now, which works out well for me.
One note, you can't add blocked sites in the preferences of the app. You must right-click the page and select 'Block This Domain' in the drop down menu. Then you can go to preferences and redirect to another site instead of simply blocking the domain.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Hobson, 6 years agoI go to far too many pointless websites. This add-on means if I try to visit them, I can't. Simple as that. It does what it says on the tin; blocks websites. One left-click anywhere on the displayed webpage and a click on the option to "Block this website", and it is done. Simples. You can redirect to a specified URL, but I've just left it my home page, which I think is the default setting.
It's not a net nanny type ad-on, more of a "Get your work done" kind of thing. Just what I needed. Thanks Allen.
